Left Hand Fork Details
Left Hand Fork is a side canyon off of Settlement Canyon. The trail starts in gamble oaks. Then turns into a short fire road. Then crosses the creek and the road near Camp Wapiti. The trail follows the fire road up to the spring where the serious climbing starts. At the spring it turns back into single track and is heavily wooded. The trail climbs up through aspen up to Bear Trap Pass. At Bear trap pass you could turn around or you could switch to Ridge Trail, Bench trail or make the decent down the back side into the main part of settlement canyon. Trail is popular with horses and it is used for grazing cattle.
The trail start just after the fork in the road. If you don't like paying tolls, park before the toll gate and ride the dirt roads to the trail head.
